Nancy Proctor DEN Smartphone Workshop Nancy Proctor DEN Smartphone Workshop Presentation Transcript

  • Beyond the 2 Minute Stop Nancy Proctor, Smithsonian American Art Museum [email_address] 10 December 2008 Soundtracks, Soundbites, and Smartphones
  • How can we create and maintain content across the wide range of platforms that make up the Distributed Museum?
  • Soundtracks & Soundbites Download & Search
  • Soundbite Sample
  • Soundbite Sample This is one of three wall -s ize paintings that Pollock realized in swift succession in the summer and autumn of 1950. In 1947, Pollock began laying canvas on the floor and pouring, dribbling, and flicking enamel paint onto the surface, sometimes straight from the can, or with sticks and stiffened brushes. The density of interlacing liquid threads of paint is balanced and offset by puddles of muted colors and by allover spattering. The pictorial result of this tension is a landmark in the history of Abstract Expressionism. Jackson Pollock . (American, 1912-1956). One: Number 31, 1950 . 1950. Oil and enamel on unprimed canvas, 8' 10" x 17' 5 5/8" (269.5 x 530.8 cm). Sidney and Harriet Janis Collection Fund (by exchange). 2008 Pollock-Krasner Foundation / Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York
  • Soundbites
    • Information at a ‘stop’
    • More easily produced in-house in a range of media, can leverage existing content
    • Connects platforms, e.g. website/cellphone
    • Facilitates going deeper & broader, serendipitous discoveries, rhizomic structure
    • Can be a tool for information gathering by the visitor, so applications that allow bookmarking and other links to online systems add value
    • Put soundbites onto 3 rd party platforms & portals (e.g. Wikipedia, YouTube) for greater outreach
  • Soundtracks
    • Works on- or off-site: timing more fluid
    • Downloaded for preference on visitor’s own device for a more intimate and comfortable experience
    • Stereo for immersive audio experience
    • Good storytelling is key
    • Images are probably essential
    • May need to outsource for high production values
    • Give keys to an artist, movement, collection, period, exhibition rather than to individual works or ‘stops’
    • Like a good album or book, should be possible to enjoy over & over again…
  • Soundtrack Sample
  • Soundtracks & Soundbites Combined
